Hall's screamer hits the mark for Hobart

Tipped most likely to take an outrageous catch by teammates, Hall didn't disappoint in her first WBBL outing

Hobart Hurricanes allrounder Corinne Hall has produced a contender for catch of the summer in her first Rebel Women's Big Bash League outing. 

The 28-year-old scored 13 runs and didn't bowl in Hobart's 35-run win over the Melbourne Renegades on Friday night, but was named player of the match after a night out in the field at Launceston’s Aurora Stadium.

She took a screamer at deep backward point to remove dangerous New Zealand import Rachel Priest and followed up with a direct hit to run out Renegades captain Sarah Elliott.

Another sharp catch – ending England allrounder Danielle Wyatt's knock – and a second run-out capped off a brilliant night for Hall, who puts her sharp reflexes down to playing representative touch rugby.

"It's nice when they (catches) come off but all the girls worked very good as a unit," Hall said.

"Collectively I think we were pretty good in the field."

Hall's screamer should hardly have come as a surprise, with the Hunter Valley product tipped as the 'player most likely to take an outrageous catch' by teammates Heather Knight and Katelyn Fryett at the start of the season.
